Abstract: The article presents some psychometric indicators of the Lithuanian version of MEIM-R (Phinney et al., 2007). MEIM-R methodology is used to research ethnic identity. In accordance with the authors of the methodology, the essence of ethnic identity is the perception of oneself as a member of group, and with time, the perception undergoes a course of development due to twofold processes: exploration of one's ethnicity, and commitment to one's ethnic group. The research was carried out with the students of Lithuanian University of Educational Sciences. The sample of respondents was - 112. The data obtained demonstrated a good internal consistency of MEIM-R questionnaire. The factor analysis of the data obtained proved the construct validity of the Lithuanian version of the test: the theoretical model of ethnic identity coincided with the two mutually-correlating factors - investigating one's ethnicity and commitment to the ethnic group. The construct validity of the research was also proved by the correlation of the results obtained according to MEIM-R and those obtained by using the questionnaire for identifying personality identity according to EOMEIS-2 (Adams et al., 1987). MEIM-R results correlated positively with those EOMEIS-2 subscales that indicate a mature degree of personality identity, and the results correlated negatively with the diffusion subscale that accounts for the immature state of personality
